ST. LOUIS — On the second lineup card he filled out without Starling Marte's name on it, Clint Hurdle wrote the name of a different right fielder than he did on the first.

John Jaso, who spent much of spring training preparing to play some outfield, is scheduled to play right field in Wednesday's 1:45 p.m. game against the Cardinals for the third time in his career after making exactly one appearance there in each of the last two seasons. Adam Frazier, who started Tuesday in the first game after Marte's 80-game suspension for testing positive for the banned substance Nandrolone, was out of the lineup.
